DIY Christmas Cards and Tags

Merry Christmas everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of the series! Today's DIY project is fun and so easy! Every day, today through Christmas I will be sharing 12 holiday DIYs with you all! I can't wait!
The third DIY of this series is my DIY Christmas Cards and Tags. They are completely customize-able and so cute! So let's get started!

You Will Need:
Christmas Accents (scrapbook paper, washi tape, buttons, stickers, etc)
Baker's Twine (or other string/twine/etc.)
 Let's start with the Gift Tags. I actually bought mine pre-made. Avery makes some that you can print on, so I just used those, because I had some in my stock. If you don't have them, you can cut some out from cardstock, and hole punch them.

Then, you get to let your creativity run wild! You can use the Sharpie Markers to write a Christmas greeting:
And then add some fun accents, like washi glitter tape!

Buttons make for a great holly branch, wreath, or ornaments:

And you can design the tag based on the recipient's personality!
 Washi Tape comes in handy to add a special something

And Christmas scrapbook paper supplies great custom cutouts, for Christmas flair!

Your own handwriting and personal messages mean so much to those you love! Share it with their favorite colors!

And to finish them off, string some coordinating baker's twine through the hole, to easily attach to their gift!

I love making these for all the gifts I wrap, and I do so while watching a Christmas movie, and enjoying a cup of Christmas tea! I love using my creativity and making them very unique!

Now, moving on to Christmas cards!
I love receiving all of the fun Christmas cards in the mail this time of year, with pictures and updates on loved ones' lives! You can make your Christmas cards that you send even more personalized, yet easy as well! Just with a bit of washi tape and a lot of love!

I started with a piece of cardstock, folded it in half, and cut it down in size.

Then I used glitter tape from the Dollar Spot at Target to make it look fun and festive. I wrote a Christmas greeting, as well! Then, I used washi tape to create little presents, and finished them off with drawn-on bows!
It took just a couple of minutes to create this special card, and it wasn't hard at all! I can't wait to make more of these to send to friends who I won't get to see this Christmas!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I would LOVE to see your tags and cards, so tweet or instagram them with the hashtag #GypsyTeacherDIY!
If you've missed the past two days, here's a recap:
On the 1st day of Christmas, I DIY-ed a Chai Tea Latte!
On the 2nd day of Christmas, I DIY-ed No Heat Sponge-Rolled Curls!
